Early Life and Education
Early childhood education (ECE) is an expansive field with many facets. To stay current in this area, educators must stay abreast of new theories and trends related to children.
Psychosocial theory, developed by psychologist Erikson, has become a cornerstone concept in early childhood education (ECE). This theory emphasizes how children’s social emotional development plays an essential role in their learning and development.
For the optimal learning experience, teachers should ensure students are actively involved in meaningful activities that will sharpen their skills. This could include reading books, playing games and discovering different cultures – especially for young children who learn better by doing than being lectured.
